License Error: Banned due to abuse.

Post by rednoah » 29 Dec 2018, 06:21

FileBot will regularly activate and check your license during normal operation. However, in some badly designed automated setups, if FileBot application data and caches are not persistent and lost between each call, then some users may inadvertently end up activating their license hundreds of times per day, and thus get themselves auto-banned.

Code: Select all

License Error: Banned due to abuse.

:idea: If your license has been Banned due to abuse then please fix your automated setup and then message me to reinstate your license.

:idea: If you don't know why your license might have been flagged by the system, please message me, so we can have a look and fix it.



Tips & Tricks for not getting yourself auto-banned next time:


1.
DO NOT activate your license before running FileBot each and every time:

Code: Select all

filebot -license *.psm
filebot ...

2.
DO NOT clear the cache before running FileBot each and every time:

Code: Select all

filebot -clear-cache
filebot ...

3.
DO NOT delete the FileBot application data folder between runs:

Code: Select all

rm -r ~/.filebot
filebot ...

4.
If you're using a Docker container please make sure that /data is mapped to a persistent filesystem:

Code: Select all

-v data:/data
